I am sorry to hear about Grant! He was always very helpful and a lot of fun. He took me on a Motor Cycle ride that I have never forgot and we had a great day. I will remember that day till my day comes. Love you Grant and I know we lost a great person and heaven gained another Angle.

My Greatest Condolences to the Family/Relatives/Friends and Fans of My 1st Cousin: Grant C. Tressler. The last time I saw Grant was shortly after the loss of his own son and after a Heart bypass surgery, and he was very upset about the loss of his own Son. But just think? Now he is crossing over right into the arms of his Son and all those loved one, that have crossed over before him? What a beautiful "Reunion" awaiting him, with so many loved ones awaiting his arrival! "There will be no sorrow there, in that Heaven Above, where only GOD is LOVE." "Fear Not for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." The hardest times are for all that remain and Prayers and Greatest Love for all in need! The last time I saw Grant he was with his one daughter and I gave to him, a Carved Lion's wooden Head, because I knew he would need to be so strong, after the loss of his Son. He was visiting the Chateau and had Great Plans to one day Open the Chateau again? I'm sure he did that and so much more, but all in preparation for the Journey he now takes? I got to hug him and meet/hug his daughter, that day, and I'm so glad I got to have that memory and moment to treasure for all times. He invited me back that evening for a time of drumming around a fire but I had other people to visit at that time also. But to this day I'm sure: He is happy and with all those that have crossed over before him and drumming for and with them all, as they are hugging him and embracing him and welcoming him HOME. Greatest Sympathies to all who remain! Sincerely: Deborah Pearl Lung-Judge (First Cousin)

"Chaunce" as my late husband called him, was quite a character. I've known him all my life. He worked with my husband at Wengerd Roofing for a while. Never much left unsaid, always had something to say. Will be missed from this side, but take all that energy to heaven and make the noise!

My condolences to Grant's family. Grant was a memorable character in many ways. When he was working at the Grant and Gram's store in Salisbury, I happened to talk with him. The first thing he asked was what was our disaster emergency. I had no idea what he meant by that, and so I asked him why he thought we had an emergency at our house. He said he noticed our US flag was flying upside down--a sign of help needed. Well, we had no emergency, but had unknowingly flown the flag upside down. Yes, I learned a lot about the flag that day---a true patriot told me all about it. I think of Grant each time I run the flag up the pole, making sure it is flown correctly. Grant Tressler was memorable in many ways to many people in this town and country. God bless his memory.
